First booking was in 2013 and have been down five times since then, which should say it all. The Old Post Office is a quaint quest house situated in South Marston, a quite sleepy village. Jackie ( but not forgetting Roger) is a very warm person and makes you feel at home.

some five years previous my partner and I were looking for accommodation for the annual International Air Tattoo at nearby Fairford when we stumbled upon vacancies at the Old Post Office ....... we read the reviews which were outstanding and duly booked a four day stay. We have never looked back and re book the accommodation every year. The guest... More

Always a warm and friendly welcome every year I come for the Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford, I class this place as my second home and class Jackie and Roger as family as well as friends, Jackie is like the Duracel rabbit she has so much energy, thank you both so much for having me again and can't...

A warm, friendly welcome, a comfortable room, a very comfortable bed and a help yourself breakfast in a lovely dining room. What more could we want? We had a two night stay at the Old Post Office, while working at Swindons Food & Drink Festival. We had a very early start time so unfortunately didn't get to sample the much... More

Having spent most of my travelling life staying in budget hotels in Europe, it made a lovely change to come to such a traditional English b&b. The rooms were bright and spacious with tea and coffee making facilities and overlooked the beautiful gardens. As a previous reviewer has commented, the beds are so comfortable and I had such a good... More

The Old Post Office Guest House is excellent value for money and the details advertised do not fully justify this superb guest house. We were warmly welcomed by Jackie the landlady who put us at our ease straight away. The room she prepared for us was very clean and the en suite was more than adequate. We had no problems... More

We have stayed with Jackie and Roger regularly over the years. Every visit, always beginning with the warmest of welcomes up until each reluctant, lingering farewell has been perfect in every respect. The rooms are cozy and spotlessly clean, the beds ensure a good nights sleep, the breakfast is locally sourced and of the highest quality and presentation. Really there... More

I stayed there on business, but an ideal location for a leisure break. The owners will give you a warm welcome and ensure your stay is comfortable. You will have the use of the garden and the breakfast area if you wanted to bring in a take away meal. A pub with good food is a stone throw away. Highly... More

This was my 4th visit and the sixteenth night that I've stayed at The Old Post Office, in South Marston, near Swindon. As on all previous occasions I was very impressed by the warmth of the welcome, the quality of the accommodation and the delightful breakfast. It is the best B7B that I know.

Warm enthusiastic welcome, second to none! Top rate accommodation, every need catered for and such good value for money. We were made to feel special and important. Brilliant stay in every way, thank you! James and June
